Paper Abstract

Science Development leads to new concepts, new tools and new techniques. It leads to a society development with new Truth. This Truth is shared by the Society which development is built on Knowledge, on rationality thinking and scientific behavior. This takes its origin in the experimental approach introduced by Ibn Al Haythem in optics at the Xth century. By the end of the last millennium, this approach-known as Active Learning in Physics- has been adopted in most developed countries in physics education programs. Active Learning in Optics and Photonics- ALOP- is extended actually to some developing countries through a UNESCO program. A French edition of ALOP takes place through many workshops over Morocco and Tunisia. It aims to build Truth on evidence and not on intuition or personal authority.
